Another tale, ripped from the Headlines (so to speak).
I just want to say, When people ask a question and then don’t listen to the answer, it’s really hard not to lie to them. I think I deserve some credit in that regard.
At any rate, there is other excitement in the world, and for me that means one thing: A new Avengers trailer.
As silly as I think the buildup is (these days, big trailers have previews for Pete’s sake), you can’t argue with the result. Avengers looks awesome. Period. If I had to change one thing, I’d change Captain America’s suit to the one from WWII, but that’s a small thing. I can live with the new suit.
With Avengers, Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises on the slate for 2012, it’s shaping up to be yet another awesome summer for comic book fans at the movies. I’ll predict right now, the final box office tally will see Batman taking in the most, followed by Avengers and then Spider-Man. Not that Spider-Man isn’t going to be good, I just think the other two will be so massive they will dwarf everything else.
The real question I suppose is will we be celebrating a “comic book” movie winning a Best Picture Oscar next year? I think it’s very possible…
